Sean McAllister / UK / 2015 / 76 ‘
Made over 5 years, this film charts an incredible odyssey to political freedom. For Raghda and Amer, it is a journey of hope, dreams and despair: for the revolution, their homeland and each other. The two met in a Syrian prison cell 15 years ago when he first saw her bloodied face when she was placed in a neighboring cell. Over months they communicated through a hole they’d secretly made in the wall. This is their heart-wrenching story of hope.
This film will be shown in Arabic, English and French with English subtitles.
There will be an optional discussion after the film with member of co-hosting group Refugees Welcome Fredericton. Films are open to everyone. Screenings are free but donations welcome. Conserver House is wheelchair accessible but the washrooms are up the stairs.
